IRFS recalls that Borgen, who is the author of “In the Shadow of Statoil” film dedicated to slain Monitor journal editor-in-chief Elmar Huseynov, and to freedom of speech in Azerbaijan, is working on a film dedicated to the Editor-in-chief of Gundelik Azerbaydjan and Realniy Azerbaydjan newspapers, Eynulla Fatullayev.
IRFS considers that this action against this Norwegian journalist proves that the Azerbaijani government is the enemy of freedom of speech. This demonstrates once again that the government not only does not want to release Eynulla Fatullayev, who was vindicated by the decision of the European Court of Human Rights, but also wants to prevent the documentary film about him from being produced.
IRFS calls on Azerbaijan’s administration to apologize to the journalist for the incident and to punish those who committed this action.
IRFS calls upon Azerbaijan’s administration to immediately release Eynulla Fatullayev, imprisoned bloggers Emin Milli and Adnan Hajizade, and to end multiple efforts against freedom of speech.
